This is Dr. David

there are some states where it is legal for medical marijuana to be used.

what state do you live in?

it sounds like the state you live, marijuana use is illegal.

you should try to call up your insurance company to see what other pain management group is in network for your insurance in your area.

you should also consult with a rheumatologist as well.

you might need testing to check for autoimmune causes for your arthritis and myositis. you should be checked for rheumatoid arthritis.

you might need infusion systemic biological therapy to help with your inflammatory arthritis.
